|CHAPTER 21 Ed was one of the first stars of the newfangled technology called TV,
2 And invented TV comedy shows,
3 And TV variety shows,
4 And TV journalism shows,
5 Among others.
CHAPTER 31 Ed started out in radio.
2 aWhere he was a ventriloquist,
3 And had a dummy named bCharlie,
4 Who was very very smart,
5 And knew everything,
6 Which made the audience like Ed a lot,
7 Because nobody likes a dummy who knows everything.
CHAPTER 41 When TV got invented,
3 Ed went on TV with Charlie,
4 Who couldn't talk when Ed was drinking water,
5 Which upset the audience,
6 For some reason,
7 And caused Ed to start looking around for something else to do on TV.
CHAPTER 51 The next great thing Ed did was start a TV variety show that was destined to last forever,
2 In TV terms,
3 Meaning more than a few years,
4 And found a whole bunch of new jugglers and comedians and singers to entertain everybody with,
||5 So that all he had to do was stand there,
6 And talk funny,
7 Which he did,
8 Although that wasn't all he did.
CHAPTER 61 For example, it was Ed who used TV to stop a cwitchhunt,
2 By smoking a lot of dcigarettes on camera,
3 And getting pretty stentorian about the echief witch-hunter,
4 Who had been hunting witches for no more than a few years,
5 With a lot of accusations and threats and a couple of frabid legal dogs,
6 On TV,
7 Without anyone saying much of anything about it,
8 gFor some reason.
9 When Ed said something about it,
10 And blew a lot of smoke all over it,
11 Everybody was pretty impressed about the way he had spoken right up,
12 After only a few years of watching it,
13 And thought he was a hhero.
CHAPTER 71 But deep down, Ed was a pretty serious guy,
2 And he had doubts about whether he had picked the right career,
3 Because he wasn't sure that talking into a microphone on camera really amounted to anything important,
4 Or worthwhile,
